    Violencia de Estado en el Perú

    Del Conflicto Armado Interno (1980-2000) a la «Generación del Bicentenario»

    El coloquio se inscribe en el contexto de los 200 años de la Independencia del Perú y se propone pensar y repensar el Conflicto Armado Interno o guerra civil (1980-2000), su final y sus consecuencias hasta la actualidad, desde el significado de la conmemoración del Bicentenario, el estudio del continuum de las formas de violencia de Estado, así como los usos de la violencia insurgente del denominado PCP-SL y del MRTA, a 41 años del inicio del conflicto en Ayacucho y a 18 años de la publicación del Informe de la Comisión de la Verdad y Reconciliación (CVR).

    New visions on fantasy

    Jangada Journal #18 – Dec. 2021

    Drawing from the history of Fantasy as a genre, this issue of Jangada Journal, from Viçosa Federal University, invites researchers to submit papers on such a pervading category in contemporary literature. We encourage analysis concerning structural and thematic approaches to the genre. We are also interested, in particular, in papers that focus on works insufficiently studied so far, extrapolating Anglophone backgrounds that have engendered Fantasy, and relating diverse media expressions through which Fantasy was disseminated.

    ¡La Nueva Canción da la vuelta al mundo! Conexiones, transferencias y apropiaciones

    A mediados de la década de 1960, surgió y se extendió a lo largo de toda América Latina un movimiento que —bajo los rótulos compartidos de nueva canción, canto nuevo, nueva trova, nuevo cancionero, canto popular y canción de autor, entre otros — tuvo como objetivo reinventar la canción  popular de raíz folclórica. Bajo el contexto de la Guerra fría, numerosos músicos provenientes de diferentes dominios del arte y de áreas culturales heterogéneas se nutrieron de la discusión acerca del antiimperialismo, el internacionalismo, el indigenismo, el socialismo, la recuperación de tradiciones populares, y la difusión de un arte pedagógico. Al incorporar estas reflexiones en la propia práctica del folclor, los músicos transformaron la nueva canción en una respuesta artística  a los problemas globales.

    1956-1958: A revolutionary period that changed Africa (and the world)

    The objective of this panel is to compare the various social mobilizations that took place in Africa during the years 1956-1958 and which arguably constitute a historical watershed. The main aim of the panel is not the making of an abstract comparative analysis, but the analysis, based on the testimonial material collected, of how the memory of these events has been structured over time. Moreover, we are interested in understanding what the impacts of these social movements were on the structuring of states and what continuities can be found between the mobilizations of that period and the ary social mobilizations that have shaken the continent in the last ten years, from the ‘Arab Spring’ of 2011 onwards.

    New approaches to the history of soft power in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries

    The study of soft power in the modern period is unequal, with much attention understandably paid to the Cold War when culture offered a surrogate for damaged and blocked political dialogues. But practices that aimed at promoting a nation abroad were not invented after the Second World War, nor were they inexistent before then. Some historians have traced their origins back to the nineteenth century with the formation of nation states (in Europe) and the growth of ministries of foreign affairs.  In addition, the historiography has largely omitted soft power policies produced by and targeting so called “periphery countries”. Therefore, much remains to be written if we are to fully appreciate the history of soft power and its associated key concepts (public and cultural diplomacy, propaganda, publicity, promotion, oeuvres -in the French context, public relations) and the multiplicity of meanings with which these ideas and practices were endowed globally throughout the modern period.

    Quantum Social Theory: The Future of Sociology?

    In sociology, without explicit basis on quantum theory, numerous streams established strong similarities with it, setting at the forefront of their paradigm: the subjectivity of the observer, the continuous adjustment between the object and the observer, the impossibility to be fully deterministic or discussions about an objective reality. In this session, we invite panellists to discuss the links that can be drawn between quantum theory and sociology. We welcome both empirical (qualitative or quantitative) as well as theoretical papers. Depending on the variety and the quality of the papers, a publication will be considered to set the basis of this emerging theoretical stream.

    Estudos feministas e de gênero em jornalismo: história, metodologia e epistemologia

    Revista Âncora - Revista Latino-americana de Jornalismo (UFPB)

    A Revista Âncora - Revista Latino-americana de Jornalismo - lança seu novo dossiê temático que tem como título «Estudos feministas e de gênero em jornalismo: história, metodologia e epistemologia». A trajetória da relação ambígua e potente entre o feminismo e a academia é longa. Dos chamados estudos de mulheres, até a década de 1970, ao campo dos estudos de gêneros, que se intensificaram a partir da década de 1980, a atuação de feministas dentro das universidades provocou tensionamentos em alicerces importantes do que tradicionalmente se entendia por conhecimento válido, assim como o perfil e atributos esperados para caracterizar o então sujeito produtor do saber científico.

Le champ de présentation des recherches porte également sur le devenir des relations entre le port et la ville, d'un point de vue interdisciplinaire et inter-institutionnel. Le choix du musée Benito Quinquela Martín à Buenos Aires comme lieu de rencontre revêt une importance particulière en raison de la place de La Boca, premier port de l'histoire argentine.

    Artists' representations

    X D. João VI Museum Seminar

    The ways in which we understand this figure in the history of art are the result of the visual and textual discourses built upon it. Its representations are present in portraits and self-portraits, sculptures, paintings, engravings and objects. It is also built through artistic criticism, the press, caricature, pieces of literature, biographies, or autobiographies. From texts of self-promotion to cinematographic works, we are interested in all forms of representation of the artist's figure, both visual and textual. Our temporal range is ample, reflections on the artist in diverse historical places and periods, including contemporaneity, are emphasized in the Brazilian and Latin American context, without ignoring comparative perspectives. Our starting point is the following question: In what ways have the transformations of perception about artists and their meanings (social, cultural, symbolic and political) marked the writings of art history?

    Artists’ collections

    Art Collections in Portugal and Brazil in the 19th and 20th centuries

    What are the representations of the artist's figure and how have they transformed over time? Intellectuals or artisans, martyrs or demons, naive or revolutionary, madmen or philosophers? Possibly, artists have been and still are characters in which several layers of interpretation coexist and blend. In this X edition of the D. João VI Museum Seminar, we present the theme "artist’s represetations", in parallel to the exhibition organized by Pinacoteca do Estado de São Paulo and the Brazilian Museum of Fine Arts, with the objective of investigating the historical constructions of the artist's image, bringing the reflection to the Brazilian and Latin American context, past and present. This has been extensively explored in French and English literature and acquires special relevance in this specific geographic universe, marked by the social distinctions concerning manual labor and the late formation of the art medium in the modern sense, after the formation of the academies and an artistic promotion system through exhibitions and the art market.

    30 anos de construção da cena brasileira moderna (1948-1978)

    Revista Sala Preta número 18 – Volume 2/2018

    Gostaríamos de destacar neste número estudos sobre  os processos artísticos que se empenharam na construção de uma moderna cena no Brasil com interesse na pesquisa de formas novas de representação da sociedade brasileira. Ainda que a recorte temporal proposto faça menção a dois momentos do teatro em São Paulo, a criação do Teatro Brasileiro de Comédia (TBC), em 1948, e a estreia do espetáculo Macunaíma, em 1978, espera-se poder contar com diversos focos analíticos do tema  e perspectivas que atendam à diversidade da ideia de nacional, com exame das experiências de modernização nos estados e desenvolvimentos regionais. Os estudos propostos devem ter como questão o trabalho de encenação em seu sentido conceitual, crítico e prático, o que inclui o conjunto dos elementos de produção do espetáculo, métodos de ensaio, organização do trabalho, relação com atuação, cenografia, iluminação, escrita cênica em tensão com a dramatúrgica etc.

    Circulation and decentralisation of arts and literature

    2nd symposium of the Guiana Shield

    Loin des centres politiques, économiques, intellectuels européens et brésiliens, la région des Guyanes est un espace hétérogène composé de pays et de territoires rassemblant des caractéristiques uniques. L'université Fédérale d'Amapá (UNIFAP), et l’université de la Guyane française (UG), parce qu'elles sont présentes dans cette localité, sont capables de rassembler les recherches produites dans et sur la région. En ce sens, la IIe journée d’études du Plateau des Guyanes : Circulations et décentralisation des arts et de la littérature s'inscrit dans la perspective de la réflexion sur le « décentrement » de la connaissance. Cette posture implique de réfléchir au rôle des théories et des pratiques académiques dans un contexte situé hors du centre, sans pour autant nier la relation centre-périphérie.

    The Francophone press in the Americas

    La culture et la langue françaises ont joué un rôle important dans le monde, tout particulièrement dans la presse du XIXe siècle, phénomène qui s’étend jusqu’au milieu du XXe siècle et s’est développée grâce à l’expansion des moyens techniques de production et de communication, permettant la circulation des modèles de presse et des sujets traités, ainsi que la constitution d’imaginaires mondialisés. Ce congrès est ainsi consacré à rassembler des chercheurs dédiés à l’étude de la presse périodique francophone dans les Amériques du XIXe et début du XXe siècle, comme journaux, revues et almanachs.
